Gospel Values

The social, spiritual, moral and cultural development of our pupils is important to us and one way in which we foster this is by promoting our ‘Gospel Values’ alongside our British Values.

As a Catholic School we actively promote values, virtues and ethics that shape our pupils’ character and moral perspective, through the teachings of the Church. We are confident that our continued focus on the Gospel Values will give our students the necessary awareness of what it means to be a good citizen in Britain today, and embed in them the building blocks of a future successful and productive life. Following the example of Jesus and trusting God we share the Gospel Values.
